At the Euromotorcars my adviser tells me it will cost me $120.00(No State Sales Tax charge because it's labor) to test my car.

So, I waited about an hour and my adviser tells me my STEERING ANGLE SENSOR IS DEFECTIVE.

TO REPLACE IT WITH A NEW ONE WILL COST ME $729.00( STATE SALES TAX INCLUDED WHICH IS 6%).

I SAW A VIDEO ON YOUTUBE ON HOW TO DO THE JOB... DISCONNECT THE BATTERY... REMOVE THE AIRBAG... REMOVE THE STEERING WHEEL... MARK THE SPOT WITH A BLACK MAGIC MARKER WHERE WAS THE STEERING WHEEL... REMOVE THE BAD SENSOR... THEN PUT THE NEW SENSOR IN AND THEM PUT EVERYTHING BACK TOGETHER AGAIN. YOU NEED A COUPLE OF SPECIAL TOOLS...I DON'T KNOW THE NAME OF IT... I DON'T HAVE THOSE SPECIAL TOOLS. BUT I DON'T FEEL CONFIDENT DOING THIS MYSLELF...

THE PART AT PARTS GEEK COST ABOUT $209.00 AND I CHECK MERCEDES BENZ PARTS OF GERMANY AND THEY'RE LOCATED IN NEW JERSEY AND THEY DON'T HAVE THAT PART AND DIDN'T LOOK ELSEWHERE FOR THAT PART. BECAUSE I AM VERY BUSY.

I MIGHT DO THIS JOB MYSELF OR I MIGHT HAVE IT DONE AT THE EUROMOTORCARS DEALERSHIP. I HAVEN'T DECIDED YET.

TO BE CONTINUED...

WAIT A MINUTE... ON THE INVOICE IT SAYS: $849.00 CUSTOMER PAID $120.00 TOWARDS REPAIR. ONLY PAYS $729.00 NEXT VISIT X ( X=UNKNOWN. X REPRESENTS THE ADVISER NAME.)

Because... at his desk he wrote down the quote on a piece of paper...$840 and i said can I have that? and he said I will print this for you and stamp it because that will make it official.

I shook his hand. (It's a Deal)

I hope this information helped somebody.
